Youth Ministry Internship -- Cathedral of St. Philip, Atlanta, GA

The Cathedral Youth Ministry Internship program is two year opportunity for college graduates interested in spiritual growth, practical training, and relational ministry. One male and one female intern will work together, with the Canon for Education and our Youth Ministry Leadership team, to create and support opportunities for the Cathedral youth to meaningfully engage the Gospel, each other, and the world. Interns will spend time in structured Bible study and prayer and explore academic reading and reflection in the area of youth ministry as part of the program. As full time members of the Cathedral staff, interns will be exposed to the many facets of a church in action and gain valuable skills that will support future work within or outside the church.

One of the outstanding Cathedrals of the church, the Cathedral of St. Philip is also home to one of the largest parishes of the Episcopal Church, with over 7,000 active members and associates. Situated prominently in Buckhead, one of Atlanta's classic neighborhoods, the Cathedral is called to minister in at least three different contexts: to a faithful and complex parish community, to the energetic city of Atlanta, and to the wider world itself. Those constituencies contain a broad variety of personalities, backgrounds, and theological perspectives. The Cathedral proclaims itself as a church for all people; we seek to shine the light to Christ in the world.

Ideal Youth Ministry Interns will be curious, energetic, flexible, willing to learn from both mentors and youth, interested in discerning their Christian vocation, and have experience with youth ministry, either as a participant or leader. Interns are 40 hour a week employees, with weekly Sunday morning hours required. Compensation package includes health insurance and vacation time.

The application is available online.
